Class notes from Poetic Non-Representational Acrylic Painting with Andrew Long, Fall 2007

What do you think of when you think of a building?  Do you think of the structure underneath?   Why don’t they call it a “built”?  “Building” is a verb – a process.

Maxine Price – a fellow student’s favorite artist, for layers and colors.

Just make work!  Andrew made over 150 pcs. his first year; he’s now been painting 7 years.

Joan Snyder – who won a Brooklyn Museum exhibit.

Techniques:

  • Clear tar – makes acrylics work more like oil.

Gather and hoard your inspirations as you live, then recapture them as needed in the studio.

Comments on My Paintings
  • As anyone who has known me for a while can tell you, I really appreciate both the artists and the ladies here on Google Plus. Especially those who are both, as is +Marilyn Fenn . Marilyn is a wonderful artist who lives down in Austin, Texas, which is a very rich town for both artists and musicians. I met her not long after I came aboard here and have enjoyed her work ever since. She usually paints abstracts, so I thought I’d share this one, which is a little different from her usual style. Drop by Marilyn Fenn ‘s page and check out her work. Do yourself a favor and circle her.
